Default The Devil on Your Shoulder

What do you say to the devil on your shoulder when he/she is telling you to go ahead and eat?

I'm noticing that these moments of rebellion are what make or break my success. I feel sort of like I did when I wanted to skip class or doing something else that was "bad" as a kid. . .I just feel like being rebellious and eating something off plan. (For me, off plan is eating when I'm not hungry or eating way past "full.")

I usually remind myself "this moment counts the most." Or "this is the moment I have been preparing for. I can do this."

So, inspire me! Give me your best "angel on the shoulder" comebacks. . .

Well...the voices are screaming pretty loud lately. But I am Praying that my Angels are yelling back louder. Hopefully, there reasoning is a bit more profound. I first ask if I really am hungry? Then I take a drink of water. If I am still hungry, then I eat. If I am just bored, I eat a sugar free hard candy or a sugar free fudgicle....that usually does the trick. Oh yeah, gum too. I also am drinking a lot more decaffenated tea....they are chock full of flavor, and I feel like I am "doing" something with my mouth.

right now, that devil is telling me that i'm hungry. but i'm telling it that i've had quite enough food for now, and we'll eat after the 1 pm conference call. and we'll eat well!!! [pepper steak and veggies].

so for right now, i'm trying to shut the devil up with some SF chai. those pretzels keep coming back, though!!!!!
